I think it woiuld be a good idea for everyone to check their speed ratings via the following link:
Some might be surprised at their ratings.
The issues with loading speed are knocking my ratings down for above-the-fold. For me, loading speed is the number one most critical issue with Hype. I don’t want to be the squeaky wheel, but the ability to run a Hype animation while simultaneously loading content is important and in many cases (if not most) this can not be remedied by a preloader or by splitting things into scenes and delaying loads through that method.
A related issue is that of reloading JS and duplicate content when you hit a new page. A shared site-wide resource folder would address the latter issue. For the former, some means of consolidating JS would be helpful (particularly when there are several Hype items on the same page). These two things are what are responsible for giving me a 49% speed score on various pages.
I want Google to like my sites, but I want the sites to be magnetic as well. Boxey, static, bootstrap-style sites are everywhere. Minimizing the Hype content seems to be the only way to achieve a good speed rating.
If this is seen to be an issue with a sizable number of Hype users, perhaps it could become a top priority for the development team.
